Episode #9: Lessons Learned

The theme for this latest episode is Lessons Learned.

We’re eager to find out how people learn, when’s the best time to learn – and what are the best methods for teaching and learning music.

So on this podcast episode, we hear from Keith Miller, a retired lecturer who is already passing on the ukulele skills he’s been learning at Sage Gateshead… to his two-year-old grandson.

We call India sitar maestro Purbayan Chatterjee in Mumbai to find out why he favours the guru-shishya method of learning.

And podcast presenter Ian Wylie tries to master a new instrument under the expert instruction of Royal Northern Sinfonia principal clarinettist Jess Lee.

So pay attention at the back, raise your hand if you have any questions and join us for half an hour as we learn a lesson or two… about learning.
